Our Lincolnshire Academy, delivered in partnership with We Are With You, creates learning, training, volunteering and employment opportunities for individuals who have achieved abstinence.
Individuals receive 1:1 support and a personalised continuing professional development plan to help them take the next step into education, training or employment. The focus is on learning as a means of supporting, strengthening and enriching recovery.
If you want to get involved in any of our events or groups simply talk to a Double Impact or WAWY member of staff who can give you the relevant times and venues you need or give us a call.
In addition, our Boston Recovery Pathways project focuses on people with drug and alcohol issues in Boston and the surrounding areas, as well as providing support to families and local Eastern European communities.

Recovery Connector Apprenticeship Scheme
Becoming a support worker in the drug and alcohol sector or the wider health and social care sector is an attractive career path for many who achieve a stable recovery and want to give something back. Our Recovery Connector Apprenticeship Scheme builds on our courses and voluntary schemes to provide the next step along the journey and prepare people to make that leap into full-time paid employment in the sector.
Recovery Connectors are employed within our main services in Nottingham and Lincolnshire, to work as part-time paid staff for 12 months. During this time they are supported to study towards a Health & Social Care Level 3 qualification, and given specific employment support to prepare them for their next opportunity. To find out more, speak to your keyworker or use the contact details opposite.
We are pleased to be partnering with We Are With You (formerly Addaction) to deliver recovery services for Lincoln and Lincolnshire
